How can you tell if your vintage wristwatch is Art Deco? Does it have an oblong face, feature geometrically elegant numerals, or tock like an Egyptian? You'll know one when you see one because like everything Art Deco, these wristwatches are instantly recognizable.

Produced after World War I, Art Deco watches made by manufacturers such as Elgin, Omega, Waltham, Patek Philippe, Bulova, Vacheron & Constantin, Rolex, Hamilton, and Gruen are famous for their daring designs and geometric shapes. Many of the best consumer goods of the day—lamps, furniture, and jewelry—were made in Art Deco style. Wristwatches were no different.
